** He is very outspoken about his dislike of [[ExecutiveMeddling studio executives tampering with his games and franchises without asking]]. Some choice red button topics include the box art of ''Bayonetta 2'', Microsoft's marketing of ''Scalebound'', the Wii port of ''Ōkami'', and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis''.[[note]]Which he wasn't involved in but dislikes anyway.[[/note]] On the other hand, he is relatively at peace with his lack of involvement in the later ''Devil May Cry'' games, going as far as to claim that he is only the creator of the first game specifically, rather than the series as a whole. He also approved of ''Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble'' for the DS and the series's anime adaptation.

* JerkassHasAPoint: While he may not be ''nice'' about how he phrases his opinions, he usually is justified in the positions he takes. Also, more often than not he only blocks and/or calls out people who provoke him first or break the rules that he has clearly established (e.g. check his twilog to avoid asking a repeat question, don't ask him about games he didn't work on, etc.).
** {{Jerkass}}: That said, most people tend to respond to minor slights on Twitter by ''ignoring'' them, not [[HairTriggerTemper blowing the hell up]] and blocking the offender.

'''Hideki Kamiya''' is a Japanese game designer best known for his incredibly blunt, sometimes irritable nature and his critically acclaimed action games, which tend to cram together ludicrous amounts of stylistic insanity and razor sharp action gameplay. Formerly of Clover Studios, a subdivision of Creator/{{Capcom}} until it was shut down, he now works with other former Clover staff at Creator/PlatinumGames.

* DoingItForTheArt
** [[https://twitter.com/PG_kamiya/status/379302161101774848 This is all that needs to be said.]] Kamiya has often expressed that he doesn't care about how well his games do in terms of sales. All that matters to him is that fans enjoy his games.
** When asked about ''Ōkami'''s relatively straightforward difficulty, Kamiya stated that "[[http://twitter.com/PG_kamiya/status/622589438028222464 there should be no difficulty when reading folklore]]."
* FaceOfTheBand: Thanks to being the most prominent member of Platinum Games, a lot of people think he directs all of their games. This is another thing that ticks him off.



* GodNeverSaidThat:
** Some fans believe that Kamiya once stated that Bayonetta would defeat Dante should the two fight. In actuality, he was making a joke about how [[HenpeckedHusband women usually have the final say over men in a relationship.]] Unsurprisingly, this joke has only stoked the flames for fans of CrossoverShipping.
** Also, some fans had believes Kamiya had once stated that he hated ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' and that he would refuse to ever allow one of his character to be included in their roster. This was, of course, not the case, what had happened was that people continuously tweeted him asking his opinions about his characters' inclusion when he had no control over it nor was he even allowed to discuss it even if he did know something, finally reaching the RageBreakingPoint and telling the "Smash Idiots" to "fuck off!"



* NoDubForYou: He explained that the reason ''Devil May Cry'', ''Viewtiful Joe'', and the original version of ''Bayonetta'' are not dubbed in Japanese because the characters in those games aren't Japanese themselves. In fact, ''The Wonderful 101'' and the Wii U port of ''Bayonetta'' are the only Kamiya games to actually include dual audio.
* OldShame: The original version of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'', often referred to as "''Biohazard 1.5''", which was his first assignment as director. He took a more passive role in accepting other team members' suggestions, turning the game into a mess that they had to completely do over from scratch. Kamiya stated that the experience taught him to take a more assertive role in making games and allowing his vision as a director to shine through.



* PromotedFanboy: Kamiya is a noted lover of video games in general, especially '80s-era arcade and console games, and his philosophy is to design the type of games that he himself would like to play. In particular, getting to work for Creator/{{Sega}} (''Bayonetta'') and Creator/{{Nintendo}} (''The Wonderful 101'') was a dream come true for him.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** He's [[https://twitter.com/PG_kamiya/status/663926241687240704 admitted on twitter]] that every one of his games have turned out very different from the initial concept.
** Has admitted that he was approached about Bayonetta appearing in ''[[VideoGame/ProjectXZone Project X Zone 2]]'', but declined as he wanted his creations Bayonetta and [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante]] to meet on 'his terms'. However, he has later stated he came to regret this decision after realizing how fans would have loved seeing the two finally meet.
